MELISSA-NOWELL-2018Something Unique: I spend most of my summers with my family back East. I love seeing the sights in New York City and Washington D.C., bike riding, and relaxing on the beach in North Carolina.

What I love about Highland: I love being on the 3rd floor. "It's quiet uptown."

Attended: I graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor's Degree in English and African American Studies. I earned a Master's Degree in Teaching from Johns Hopkins University.

I love reading, watching period films and traveling. I am married and have three boys. I am close with my family and spend much of my summers visiting with my parents, siblings, my one surviving grandparent, aunts, uncles, and numerous cousins. I love going to the movies and am excited to see the new musical Hamilton.
